Our poor back country first aid kit had been raided over the past 9 months or so since we finished our thru-hike.
It’s time for it to be replenished.
First, some of the important things.
No, that is not all. But close.
The most important part, the training, can’t be shown here. But a class like the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Wilderness First Aid (WFA, pronounced “Wu-Fa”) helps build the confidence you need to go out in the backcountry with such a minimal kit.
The class was a requirement laid down by Goddess before she would step a single step on the thru-hike. We’re both glad we did, just as we are glad that we didn’t have any serious issues to deal with on the trail.
And before anyone asks – yes, the Spider Man bandages are very important!
